Finding information in a repository

To find detailed information about a repository on GitHub, you can filter, sort, and search issues and pull requests that are relevant to the repository.

Filtering issues and pull requests

Issues and pull requests come with a set of default filters you can apply to organize your listings.

Filtering issues and pull requests by assignees

Once you've assigned an issue or pull request to someone, you can find items based on who's working on them.

Filtering issues and pull requests by labels

Once you've applied labels to an issue or pull request, you can find items based on their labels.

Filtering pull requests by review status

You can use filters to list pull requests by review status and to find pull requests that you've reviewed or other people have asked you to review.

Sorting issues and pull requests

Filters can be sorted to provide better information during a specific time period.

Using search to filter issues and pull requests

Every issues and pull requests view comes with a search bar for advanced filter management.

Sharing filters

When you filter or sort issues and pull requests, your browser's URL is automatically updated to match the new view.
